The leader of “Ukrainian choice” Viktor Medvedchuk should be empowered, as he manages to successfully negotiate with Russia on the exchange of prisoners. Such opinion on air of TV channel “112 Ukraine” was expressed by the political expert Vasily Makarov.
“When I speak about new initiatives Medvedchuk, they need to think and say “one second, we’re talking about the start of the political season – will enact legislation that will unleash what is called the Minsk process, select the world in General, and then in March all the voters of Ukraine would participate in the elections”… it seems to Me that when we are talking about Russia – we have a negotiator, who manages to negotiate with Russia. Let us remember all the exchanges of prisoners, detainees, we have this experience. Why not to use it now? When in a society there are different ideas, discussed different initiatives – why don’t we trust the man not to put him the task to negotiate this key?” he said.
On the questions about the feasibility of expanding the powers of Medvedchuk, Makarov said, “Absolutely, it is necessary that it was the representative who has authority”.
Recall that in December last year, hosted the largest exchange according to the formula “306 at 74”.
We note that recently it became known that the participation of Viktor Medvedchuk in the negotiation process for the first time spoke German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Viktor Medvedchuk is a Ukrainian representative in the negotiations on exchange of prisoners in the Donbass (part of the sub-group on humanitarian issues of the Trilateral contact group).
As you know, thanks to the participation of Viktor Medvedchuk managed to release more than 480 of Ukrainian citizens.
